The Blackbyrds, inspired by master trumpeter Donald Byrd, featured some very talented Howard University students. They signed with Fantasy Records in 1973 and are best known for their 1975 hit "Walking In Rhythm", which rose to #4 on the R&B charts and received a Grammy nomination. This was followed up with another hit " Happy Music", which rose to #3 on the R&B charts. In 1976, The Blackbyrds released a DC favorite "Rock Creek Park" which has been sampled nummerous times by other groups and artists.
